The WRT has moved. If you're looking for info, entries or anything else bikepacking related try Bear Bones Bikepacking, the Bear Bones blog or the Bear Bones forum - ta.

Yea, yea, yea, but what is it?

The WRT is a 3 day and perhaps more importantly 2 night ride through and around mid Wales. You'll be expected to be self sufficient, carrying everything you need and sleeping out in or under whatever you think best. It's not elitist, entry is open to anyone who wants to try it. All the money raised by the WRT goes to the Wales Air Ambulance charity ... an organisation I hope you'll never need.

AlpKit Rig7 ... best in test.

Thought some of you might be interested in this, seeing as how we (me) likes tarps. The latest issue of Trail magazine has a tarp test ... 5 different tarps go head to head sort of thing. Anyway our friends at AlpKit have walked away with best value (not surprisingly) and also best in test ... hoora I hear you cry.

Their Rig7 tarp saw off some big names and some big prices to come out on top. The test makes interesting reading in itself, so you might want to pick a copy up, especially as there's a sleeping bag and sleeping mat review in there too. Obviously if you're on the look out for a tarp then make your way over to AlpKit and buy yourself a winner.
